Denver Airport's Latest Sculpture: God of the Dead
DENVER (AP).- Sculptures outside Denver International Airport already include a 30-foot-tall, rearing blue mustang with glowing red eyes, nicknamed "Bluecifer" by snickering locals.

Now the airport has another statue: a 26-foot tall replica of the Egyptian god of the dead.

Workers erected the seven-ton replica of Anubis on Wednesday next to the main terminal to promote an upcoming King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. The statue has promoted the exhibit in other cities too.

It's not far from the sculpture of the blue horse called "Mustang," by Luis Jimenez. The artist was killed in 2006 when a large piece of the sculpture fell on him in his studio.

Airport officials say Anubis will stay only through the summer.
